Vixen FL80S (my favorite grab and go) and GP mount. The eclipse was visible with the naked eye at sunrise, because of high clouds. It was amazing. Even got some pix with my iPhone. Also a couple through the eyepiece. Spectacular!!

Nice going....You got a pretty good view from there it seems.

 we had some of it here, albeit briefly, after sunrise. I went up the road  a piece to get a better view with no neighborhood trees. I used my binoculars with solar protection covers  I made out of silver black polymer and a prinkle potato chip can and some duct tape.....Thanks for putting this up...

Great photos, thanks for sharing. Also nice G&G setup.

Here in SW Ohio the eclipse was blocked by a solid overcastfrown.gif .

I assume it was cloudy here. It’s been cloudy and raining since Sunday. It was cloudy when I went to bed last night and it was cloudy when I woke up at 8:30 this morning. Given the weather trend of late I had very low expectations and so no plans to wake up at the crack of dawn.
